We joined a video store called Family Video. We had gone in there to buy this certain kind of candy for the children's Easter baskets. It is the only place in town that sales Toxic Waste candy. I just asked about how much movies were, and they were very reasonably priced. The first month after joining all rentals are half priced and they have video games for Justin, as well as free movie rentals on certain children's movies. I have to say they have a great selection of movies and I think it is kine of fun to go and look for a good movie to rent.
One of the movies I rented was the new Peanuts Movie. I am a huge Peanuts fan, so I really liked it. I also rented a movie called The Letters about mother Teresa and I have to say it was such a wonderful movie. Even if you are not Catholic, it is worth watching. She was such an amazing and giving person.
Some of our friends just recently moved out of state, and they asked if we would like their little pre-lit Christmas tree. I've always thought it would be nice to have a tree in our down stairs family room, so we accepted. I am purchasing decorations for it from Amazon, and now have everything but the silver star and silver wrap around tinsel. I stick to a budget so I get a little at a time. I found the most beautiful tree skirt that was hand made for it. The colors are aqua and silver. So I'm leaving the tree up until I have all the decorations purchased for it. Christmas is my favorite time of year, so I don't mind looking at my Christmas tree off season for a little while.
I love Megan's little bedroom. The vanity she has used to be mine as a child and her great grandfather re-varnished it a long time ago, before his passing. That makes it extra special. Her little hamster Oreo is so sweet and cute. She is black with a white stripe on her belly.
This is Lauren's little bedroom. She likes to get under her covers and read.
I think this is so cute, she decorated the inside of her armoire. She keeps her little lotions and body sprays, lip balms and nail polishes in it. So sweet.
Here are Steven and Justin this morning enjoying one of Justin's free movies.
Through the week we just do quick breakfast meals, but each Sunday morning I make us bacon and eggs. Steven always has hot coco with marshmallows and I enjoy my cup of coffee with half and half. It is a nice tradition our Sunday morning breakfasts. The children eat their's later as they tend to sleep in a bit.
That is a little snapshot of our week!
